Ok, so I am really horrified by what this website has done. It is run by one man named Markus Frind and apparently he is a huge scammer. I can't completely hate this site because I met my boyfriend through it, but here is what happened. Markus/his website almost ruined my relationship.
I was just being a silly paranoid girlfriend yesterday and looked to see if my boyfriend was on the site again...it turned my world upside down when I saw that he was--or so I thought. It was his picture, a username similar to his real name, had actual facts about him that were true, etc.
So I accused him of being on there and cheating on me. Turns out (from my own theory and from the fact that so many people have complained about this site making up fake profiles) that the site re-posted his profile without his permission and/or used his old profile info to make a new one without his permission. The more users the site can claim it has, the more money Markus makes from advertisers and Google!!!
So Markus has put tons of fake profiles in there in order to inflate Markus's user numbers/stats!!!! This is so sick and messes with peoples lives! Please stop this horrible person. Illegal use of information. I also read the other report on here about POF.com saying that someone's actual address, phone number, etc were put up on it without the person's permission and even included children's photos!!! horrible!!!
